If you’re coming down to Platte City-Airport Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram at 2605 Northwest Prairie View Road and you think that you’re ready to buy a new or used car, you might wonder exactly what documents you need to seal the deal.
The answer is not too much, but there are certain documents you’ll need depending on your situation. Here’s the basic rundown:
If you’re trading in your car: If you’re planning to trade in your old car towards the value of a new one, we’ll need the title of your old car – signed by the legal owner – in order to take the car on trade in. If you have a lien against your car, you’ll need documentation from the bank about the payoff amount for the car.
If you need credit: We’re happy to offer financing services right here at our dealership. Feel free to fill out the online credit application before you come into the showroom. Be prepared to finish the application at the dealership with your ID, pay stubs, and proof of residency.
Regardless, of your situation: No matter what, you definitely need proof of insurance and your valid driver’s license. You’ll also need either payment in full or the down payment that accompanies your approved financing.
There are several options for making your down payment. As they say, cash is king. Personal checks can work too, though if you’re out of state or the local area, you probably want to bring a certified check. Depending on your credit card carrier, you may be able to charge a portion of your down payment. Call our financing department at (888) 602-9743 to find out the best way to best pay for your car.
Once at the dealership, we’ll guide you through ensuring that your new car is properly inspected and registered before, or soon after, you leave the lot. And that’s it!
Of course, if you have any questions about anything, don’t hesitate to call our experienced dealers for answers. Or, if you’re in the North Kansas City, Platte Woods, Parkville or surrounding communities, come on over to our location right near the Platte City airport!
